Visiting the Toy Halls of Fame Exhibit
I am going to visit the Toy Halls of Fame exhibit at The Strong museum.
Things will be different from my last visit. This is to keep me and my adult healthy. Museum hosts will be wearing blue shirts and masks. The museum may smell different than I remember. I will smell the cleaning supplies that the workers are using to clean the museum. I might see workers cleaning while I am visiting the museum. I can help, too, by cleaning my hands and not touching my face.
I can choose to take the blue staircase or elevator up to the exhibit. There will be other children playing there.
I can play games by moving my body. I will see a big Mr. Potato Head overlooking the exhibit. Mr. Potato Head waves at me when I touch buttons on a special pad. I can wave back, too. If I want, I can make pretend bubbles on a very tall video screen. I will stand in the circle on the carpet. When I wave my arms up and down, I make lots of bubbles. I will let the next child take a turn when I am finished. There is a large, glowing Crayon Piano in the exhibit. I can make the crayons light up and create music when I wave my hands over them. I might also like to play with the virtual playroom. When I stand in a circle on the carpet, I can pretend to play with toys on the screen or draw a picture by moving my arms.
The exhibit has information about toys in the National Toy Hall of Fame. It also has information about people who create toys. I may see my favorite toys in display cases.
The Toy Halls of Fame exhibit is colorful. I will stay with my adult in the exhibit. I will have fun at the museum!
